Wedding Highlights: Formals

You're probably really sick of me posting wedding stuff. I'm sorry about that.

Anyway, here are our formals. How are they different than bridals you may ask? Well, they were taken at the Gilbert temple, where we were married.

Fun facts about our formals:

+ All these were taken by Cami Parker.
+ I did my own hair and makeup. Surprised? So was I.
+ I got my flowers for my formals out of the trash at a grocery store. I remembered the night before that I needed a bouquet for pictures so I ran to the grocery store to see what they had. Nothing. Then I started snooping around and found these in the trash! I honestly love how they turned out haha. Don't worry, I had something a little more legit for my actual wedding.
+ We took pictures at 6AM the day before our wedding. It was either that, or 3pm on our wedding day. We decided we'd rather not melt in the sun at 3pm on summer day in Arizona.

Honestly, taking formals a day ahead was was one of the best decisions of the whole wedding. That way, I could relax on the wedding day. I never once worried what my hair, makeup, or anything was doing, because I had taken a ton of really great pictures the day before. It felt nice to just enjoy the day, and let the moments just happen.

After we got married and took all the family photos, we stayed for a few more wedding-day formals. You can tell the difference because my hair is up and has flowers in it on our wedding day. Before we made our grand exit out of the temple to see our friends and family, they just cut a few flowers out of my bouquet and my photographer and mom stuck a few in my hair. Always keepin it real, and keepin it chill.
